My photo
Our life is full of wonderful, chaotic, blessed, hysterical, insane, magical, sad, scary, sweet, mind boggling, moments. While balancing life with 3 cherubs, parents, sisters, BIL, In-laws, 1 teaching career, and many good friends; I find that our life is moving far toooo fast. It is important to cherish and record the moments as we consistently try to balance our scale (God forbid I make a photo album)! MB

Crane. Must be reliable, punctual, insistent, strong. Job description: able to drag lift cherub 1 out of bed.

Literally, pay back is a *itch. I used to drive my own Dad crazy because I "just.couldn't.get.up". There are some days I just want to scream or leave her in her nice cozy bed. Let her miss school all together. See if that bugged her? Unfortunately, I don't think she would be fazed one bit. Sorry Dad if I put you through this! Sigh.

Our Very Own Amelia Bedelia

Since birth, cherub 3 has been literal. I have written before about times when he followed the letter of the t...making us feel as though we were in an Amelia Bedelia story (water the Xmas tree-splash, feed the fish-throws quarter in). The most recent case:

Hubby & cherub 3 making dinner. Hubby seasons broccoli and wraps in tinfoil.

Hubby: Cherub 3, can you put the broccoli on the grill?

Cherub 3 heads outside, opens tinfoil and painstakingly places each little piece of broccoli on the grill.

Hubby painstakingly removes tiny pieces of burnt broccoli from grill.

Sidebar: Not even thinking about WHY hubby asked my 8 year old to go outside without him and place something on the grill? Really?
